SOLARIA Crowdfunding Anniversary Original Song Contest

The Submission Period Has Now Concluded

Please stay tuned as we process the entries over the next few days and begin judging. Best of luck to all entrants, we are looking forward to hearing your songs!

We are currently processing the number of entries and will provide an estimate for the time needed for judging after we have removed all duplicate and disqualified submissions from the entry set.  Judging will be anonymized, which will increase the time it will take, but help to ensure fairness for all participants.

Thank you for your patience.

To commemorate the one year anniversary of the project's crowdfund, SOLARIA's first Original Song Contest is now live!

To enter, just upload and submit an original song featuring Synthesizer V SOLARIA during the submission period. There are no genre or style limitations, and the song is judged on overall sound rather than strictly technical merit. Songwriters do not have to be music professionals or experienced users of Synthesizer V SOLARIA to enter!

Don't have Synthesizer V SOLARIA? Users who have not purchased the full version of SOLARIA can enter the contest using the free "Lite" version of her voice database, available below. The Lite version is a lower quality, feature-reduced version of the full voice database, intended to be used as a trial to give just a taste of what the full database has to offer.

PLEASE NOTE: As with all Synthesizer V Lite databases, the lite version of SOLARIA may not be used commercially in any way, and any usages of the lite database must indicate in the upload title or prominently in the description or associated text that they used "SOLARIA Lite"
